This is a great question and we are very transparent to provide a clear explanation.
Our service gives users the flexibility to connect to third-party sources and generate data from their social media profiles in seconds. Once a source is connected the user is free to test the widgets and embed them live on their website, even in the free trial.
In order to provide this, we invite free trial users who are serious about implementing our services.
The credit card verification takes just a few seconds and it is not processed until the trial process which means the user can cancel their subscription without any charge.
Asking for a Credit Card in the subscription business or SaaS is a standard industry practice.
To make sure users get what they have signed up for, we provide direct chat support, and we constantly update our demo pages where users can actually see how the system works.
